What is Holistic Dentistry?
Holistic Dentistry, also called Biological Dentistry, is a dental approach that considers the whole body, not just the teeth, promoting health and wellness rather than treating disease. At BioDental care, we know the impact that the health of our mouth has on the rest of our body and that oral health is an integral part of whole body care. A key component in our bio-dental care is the way in which we take a close look at each individual patient’s medical and family history, making sure that no stone is left unturned, thus eliminating any chance of illness elsewhere in the body.
Main Factors of Biological Dentistry
- Proper nutrition to prevent and reverse degenerative dental disease
- Avoidance and elimination of toxins from dental materials
- Prevention and treatment of bite problems that cause physical imbalance
- Prevention and treatment of gum disease
Why choose Biological Dentistry as your dental option?
Your body is natural, and we think your dentist and treatment should be too. Combining the best of modern science, knowledge, education, and credentials with scientifically proven natural remedies for your symptoms, we want to educate you and present you with an option that will affect your entire wellness. We recognize that there are well-documented systemic links between your oral health and other systemic diseases, such as:
- Heart disease
- Respiratory Disease
We practice the highest of level of mercury-free dentistry, always using premium dental products and materials for fillings, crowns, and inlays. If you have amalgam fillings, we strongly recommend you have them removed, as they contain toxic chemicals that can lead to serious health problems. Fifty percent of amalgam fillings are made of mercury, as well as silver, tin, and copper.
Mercury is poisonous and, according to the World Health Organization, not safe at any level. In fact, mercury is harmful to nearly every system of your body and can cause digestive, respiratory, and neurological problems. Our dentists at BioDental Care are some of the few dentists worldwide who have the specialized training and equipment to remove fillings made with mercury in the safest manner. We use only bio-compatible, BPA-free, and non-toxic dental materials on all our patients and follow the approved protocol for removing mercury amalgam fillings, established by the International Academy of Oral Medicine.
Ozone Therapy (also known as oxygen therapy) is a treatment that uses oxygen to eliminate infection and support the surrounding healthy tissue without the toxic side effects of drugs. Ozone therapy is based on the principle that pure oxygen triggers healing responses in the body so that it can heal itself by removing hidden infection-causing agitators. Ozonated gas and water work together to destroy bacteria throughout teeth and gums during the following dental treatments:
- Fillings – Ozone therapy ensures the tooth is free of decay before the filling is placed.
- Periodontal disease procedures – Ozone therapy kills bacteria that cause gum inflammation and bone loss.
- Oral surgeries – Ozone therapy aids in the resolution of any infection in a surgical site.
- Root canals – Ozone therapy kills bacteria throughout the tooth.
IV Vitamin C Treatments
We recommend following up on any mercury removal with an intravenous vitamin C treatment, which would replace the electrons that heavy metals take with them as they leave your body. When given by intravenous (IV) infusion, as opposed to orally, vitamin C can reach higher levels in the blood. We believe that each intravenous treatment ought to be tailored to the individual patient and his or her particular needs, so our dentists work closely with each patient to design the best treatment plan for them.
Proliferation Therapy is a regenerative injection therapy that stimulates the body’s own natural healing processes. Prolotherapy is used in dentistry to improve soft tissue healing. Often instrumental in bone grafting and dental implant placement, we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), processes that initiate and accelerate healing by separating the platelets from other blood cells and then reintroducing them back into the body.
